The bylaws specify the purpose of the organization, the duties of the Executive Board members, procedures for holding funds and accessing those funds, and other aspects of the PTO operations. The current Executive Board has drafted an update of the bylaws to address some outdated elements of the existing version. Some of the notable proposed changes include:
- Consolidation of the Corresponding Secretary and Recording Secretary positions on the Executive Board.
- Addition of electronic communications (website, email) to Secretary duties.
- Addition of language to encourage the use of class funds within the year that they are raised.
- Consolidation of some aspects of the previous "procedures" guidance into the bylaws (such as the procedures for requesting funds from the General PTO account and the grade-level accounts).
Any PTO member (including any parent/guardian of a Huntington student, as well as all teachers and administrators) may submit comments on the draft bylaws at the October 11 meeting or via email prior to the meeting at firstname.lastname@example.org. A simple majority vote at the October 11 meeting is needed to approve the updated bylaws.
